Halloween Mail Art Exchange



The first Mail Art exchange I have organized is approaching its due date.
I will be sharing my envelopes with you all as soon as mine makes an appearance!

It seems the ladies who took part had a lovely time being creative with their envelopes,
based on the feedback I have received...

 
So, how about a
Halloween Mail Art Exchange?

oOo
 

Rules:

Stitch a Halloween design and finish it as an envelope.

Send it along with a card and little goodies such as floss, ribbon, buttons or chart
 Nothing too big, as it has to fit in the envelope you've made :)
 
Please be ready to post worldwide.

 
oOo

 
I you wish to take part, please leave a comment stating you wish to join the fun
(Apologies, I will only accept people who have an active blog!!)

You have until the 1st August to join/enter.
 

oOo

 
Mail Art must be sent by the 1st October,
so that we can all enjoy our gifts in time for Halloween!

Mail art can be sent as it is or under envelope,
it's entirely up to you.

Being French, I had to have this one!
I absolutely love how she drew the Eiffel Tower...
 
Also fell in love with her latest little summer rabbits.
I think this will also end up through my letterbox

Found out my lil' sis is expecting a baby :)
 
As for her first, I have to stitch a birth record sampler
And, of course, I found this cutie...
